Racist Trump is On Drugs

President Donald Trump is seeking to take credit for making Juneteenth -- a day commemorating the end of slavery in the United States -- "very famous," after rescheduling his first rally since the start of the pandemic to avoid further criticism for seeming to co-opt it.

Trump told The Wall Street Journal that "nobody had ever heard of" the holiday before he brought it up.

"I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous," Trump said in reference to the rally date in an interview published Thursday. "It's actually an important event, an important time. But nobody had ever heard of it."
"Nobody heard of it" means that Trump never heard of it. Remember that Trump is the clown who thinks that most people didn't know that President Lincoln was a Republican.
President Trump believes that most Americans don’t know that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.

“Great president. Most people don’t even know he was a Republican,” Trump said while addressing attendees at the National Republican Congressional Committee Dinner. “Does anyone know? Lot of people don’t know that.”
"Party of Lincoln" was evidently a phrase that Trump had never heard.

He also forgot that his own administration has issued Juneteenth statements for the last three years.

Today's rethuglican party is no more the party of Lincoln than today's Democratic party is the party of Jefferson. Both parties are virtual polar opposites of their 19th Century namesakes. State's rights, limited federal government, civil rights, universal suffrage, are all issues that are now opposite to what each espoused 160 years ago.

Dates, check, for the next Thug party conventions...

Once can be claimed as an accident,
Twice might be expalined away as coincidence,
Three times, there is no quesiton, enemy action.

Presnut dog whistle is trying to expand his base.

Trump has seriously raised awareness of Juneteenth. Accidentally, sure.

It's all over social media this year; last year there was nothing.

There has usually been a waterfront celebration here, but this year there are (illegal) fireworks and a few gunshots. In prior years, it was quiet away from the celebration locale and time.
